I found this book to be very well researched and informative. It presents Islam as strongly militant. This should not be a surprise given its roots. It's founder after all was unapologetically a military commander. Islam's adherents revel in his military prowess. Should it surprise us that a large number of his followers consider the taking up of arms a spiritual endeavor. A large number may consider Jihad a personal struggle against evil but Mohammad took up the sword on many occasions. It is consequently all too readily reached for by those who consider him there model. This is why all the apologetics for Islam as a ?peaceful religion? will ultimately ring hallow for most of its adherence and it cannot be believed.
This is a valid historical treatise of the book. The "history" in the Dan Brown's book is indefensable so it is not hard to debunk. When an author mixes the line between fiction into a history much is at stake. Especially when the history is central to a peoples faith. The valid question is answered in this book. Is this history or fiction? It is clearly fiction. An answe needed to be given to this challenge. This book answers the challenge.
I see Muslim groups periodically set up booths promoting Islam. I am always tempted to stop off and ask them what would happen in most of their countries if I, a Christian, were to set up a similar table promoting Christianity at a University. I would likely be expelled from the country, jailed or even executed. A peaceful religion? I'll believe it when they afford people of different faiths the same priviliges they are afforded here in the US instead of violently persecuting them in many cases.
